Most tiny New York apartments are terrifying. But in the right
hands, they can be turned into something amazing. That’s the case for this Park
Avenue South condo, which is owned by interior designer Amir Khamneipur and
which he listed today for $1.775 million.
Though the place comes in at less than 700 square feet (669 to be
exact), cleverly placed windows and mirrors make it seem much, much bigger. The
home was featured in the July issue of “House, Beautiful” and a 2014 article in
the “Wall Street Journal,” where Khamneipur described all the tips and tricks
he used to give the small apartment the feeling of space. “I would rather
live in a custom jewel box than a badly designed mansion,” he told “House,
Beautiful.” “This apartment brings me such joy.”
The apartment has one bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, 14-foot
ceilings, 10-foot doors and custom, double-height cabinetry. Everything in the
space was custom-designed by Khamneipur, and listing agent Claudia Saez-Fromm
of Town Residential tells LLNYC that a buyer may be able to negotiate with
Khamneipur to include the furniture with the sale.
Saez-Fromm says Khamneipur decided to sell because he received
interest in the apartment after the “House, Beautiful” piece and he wants to
upgrade to a two-bedroom.
